I started to hear birds in the trees, my for the first time ever outside my London home. I also noticed that I didn't have to take my asthma inhaler as soon as I got up. Or smell the sooty pollution coming in the open window every morning. Bees and other insects would fly in unexpectedly, not scared away by traffic noise.

Nature seemed to be having a holiday in urban spaces. I discovered that it was happening all over the world due to the pandemic. Nature it seemed was getting a pause on human encroachment. Or so I thought. But now I hear the pandemic is being used to cover up deforestation and resource extraction (mining) in protected areas all over the world.

bkeepr1 is a new alias for Bioni Samp streaming from home in the CV age. As an electronic music producer and seasonal beekeeper. I was inspired to learn more about bee frequencies and make a creative work that incorporated these bee frequencies in the hope of raising awareness about bees and their increasingly fragile ecology system’.
